    Maybe we all had him overrated if he wasn't even good enough for the PS and he hasn't been picked up. I wasn't buying into him at first bet he really looked good at the end
    And people are now starting to realize the truth.....

    but seriously, i think the reason he didn't make PS, is because he's already been on the limit (i think its 2 or 3 years)
    after that, a player can't stay on practice squad.
    I thought I heard some type of rule like that anyway.

    Yea I thought he was at the limit as well.

    I haven't searched yet, however, it appears that we didn't have any problem getting any of our PS guys through waivers.

    As I've said repeatedly on here, I think alot of you guys are a bit gun shy with respect to your worries for players like JJ after the Thygpen issue.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    My understanding is it's a maximum of 2 years on that particular team's PS.

    or some of you think our practice squad players are better than they really are.
    Think of it this way, if 31 other teams didn't want them in the draft, and 31 teams didn't want to pick them off waivers, they can't be that great.

    That last post says it all

    Very rarely do you see a practice squad player actually really make it

    Yes that is the rule and he did reach the limit...


    Steven Haushka also was claimed by Baltimore today.
